When it comes to your zodiac sign you can learn a lot about your personality traits, career matches and who you naturally get along with. Each of the 12 zodiac signs represents a unique combination of traits. Some traits you may read and say, “Yes, that is so me!” while others will miss the mark, but the overarching themes are the same for your zodiac sign. Read on to find out all about the May 23 Zodiac: sign, traits, compatibility and more!

What is the Zodiac Sign for May 23rd ?

The zodiac sign for May 23rd is Gemini. Gemini is represented by the Twins who are in the Gemini constellation. The constellation was named after the Greek and Roman myth of Castor and Pollux, half-brother twins. What exactly are half-brother twins? Castor and Pollux had the same mother, Leda, but different fathers. Tyndareus was the father of Castor and Zeus was the father of Pollux. An interesting twist (besides the half-brother twin part) was that Castor was mortal and Pollux was immortal. They must have been close twins because Pollux asked his dad to donate some of his immortality to Castor so they could be together forever. That is when they were transformed into the Gemini constellation!

What are the Personality Traits of a Gemini?

If you were born during the zodiac sign of Gemini you are known to be the life of the party! You are social, outgoing, chatty and like intelligent conversations. You will actually seek out people that have varied interests so you know you will be able to participate in an intriguing conversation. Gemini have a reputation of being able to talk to anyone about just about anything. Sometimes they overshare, or may impulsively share something that they should keep to themselves, but they are quick to apologize and move on easily after mistakes.

The notion of Gemini being twins is sometimes the implication that it would be great if a Gemini could clone themselves so they can do all the things that interest them. They have multiple hobbies, interests and sometimes even careers. Friends and family may describe them as “always on the go!”.

Because they are so social and chatty they sometimes will spill the beans on information that should have been kept private.

Those with a water sign can sometimes be sensitive and get their feelings hurt easily while Gemini recover quickly from set backs and may have a hard time understanding an emotionally driven water sign. Gemini are least compatible with people born between Feb 19-March 20 (Pisces), June 21- July 22 (Cancer) and Oct. 23- Nov. 21 (Scorpio). Just because water signs are less compatible does not mean couples with these respective dates can’t make it work and thrive. Remember, your zodiac sign is just one element to consider!
